Welcome to Discuss, our new developer discussion space! In this monthly series, we share what’s happening across the Akamai Developer Community.
In June, we released Terraform Provider 4.0 and Terraform CLI 1.6, EdgeWorkers Golang 6.0, and a new EdgeWorkers use case demo. Read on to catch up on all of this and more.

We’ve released new versions of Terraform Provider and Terraform CLI. Breaking changes for Terraform Provider include updates to the Appsec malware policy and removal of the cpc_prefix in the akami_cp_code resource from PAPI. We’ve also added features and enhancements including the ability to deactivate EdgeWorkers versions upon EdgeWorkers deletion and improved variable evaluation logic in the akamai_property_rules_template data source for PAPI.
We migrated the Terraform CLI to Terraform 1.3.7., added functionality for flag schema to work with the include sub-command as well with the with-includes flag, and fixed two bugs.
